Would You Pay $12.95 for a Magic Band?

This post brought to you by Christina Wood of Pixie Vacations, the preferred Disney vacation travel planner of The Disney Blog.


Offsite guests can now buy MagicBands for use in the parks. You’ll pay $12.95 for each band, which will store your fastpasses and your tickets, but they won’t have charging privileges. We were in the parks the first day they were offered and saw plenty of middle management standing around in their always-sensible black heels watching for guest reactions to this new offering.

Of course, once you have the MagicBand, there are now countless accessories you can purchase to plus it with.


Having a MagicBand is beyond convenient, but would you pay $12.95 for each person in your party to have one? I don’t know if I need to spend that kind of money. What do you think? Is paying $50 for a family of four worth it? Or will you just stick with your RFID enabled park ticket, since it does the same thing?
